Dear smokeping community,

Maybe you guys could tell me if this is a bug or not. And/or if it has been
fixed in a later release.

1. Configure

I am running Debian testing (squeeze), and I have apt-get installed

I had problems with getting the charts to show.  At first I got the tiny
overview charts, but not the larger detailed one.

After going RavingRabbit on my system I found out that:

This works
Config, Targets file:
++ googlecouk

menu = google.co.uk
title = google.co.uk
host = google.co.uk

This does not work

++ google.co.uk

menu = google.co.uk
title = google.co.uk
host = google.co.uk

2. Timer
I use the EchoPingHttp probe as well, and I get these errors sometimes.

Mar  3 01:37:36 pwwrpad smokeping[9285]: EchoPingHttp:
www.thewebsite.comtimeout (6 s) reached, killing the probe.

Is there a way to increase the timer?

3. Debian package, testing(squeeze)

And rrdtools did not get installed when I did the apt-get install smokeping.
I also had to go into the smokeping.cgi and set the lib pointer to rrdtools
up manually.
On purpose?

Anyways thanks for the good software!
